    Unhappy trim motor #2...dead!

    I had to replace my trim motor on my sl750 about a month before I had to tear the boat apart to repair the hull. now, after over a year of sitting in a box, the boats back together, and the motor isnt working...AGAIN!

    I really dont wanna buy another one, is there a simple way to repair these? the last time it was the motor itself that died. I havent looked inside this one yet to figure out the cause.

    I have heard that you can use a motor from a rc car. Or check with graniger.com.

    I'd definately put the power and ground directly to the motor and swap the wires a few times, add a little WD-40 it should free right up.

    it's a moot point now.
    I broke the steering cable out on lake erie today. I also discovered a few small seal leaks around the pump houseing. I'm done fiddling with this thing for a while. time to winterize and call it a year.

    but thanx for the help guys.

    Sorry to see you put it away so early!! By the way do you want to pay shipping for a cable from Cali? If you have the NON extended pump I have a great cable, I changed mine for a longer cable when I did my extended pump.
